bitbake: main: Fix environment handling for UI module imports
The environment was being cleared before the UI imports occurred which caused problems for graphical UIs like taskexp. The full environment was intended to be available to UI clients and it was only meant to be cleared for the server/cooker, so tweak the code order so this is the case. This fixes problems reported for taskexp. [YOCTO #12670] (Bitbake rev: 2e4845c526117d5524cff910afbb6f8212a3e199) Signed-off-by: Richard Purdie <>
